Red Hat OpenShift on VMware

Copy URL

As software developer demands conform to experiences delivered by the cloud, IT operations teams are challenged to best deliver the speed, agility, portability, and scale to satisfy developer needs, without compromising the security features and visibility required by IT operations. While customers have the flexibility to run containers in the cloud, or on bare metal on-premises, most on-premises infrastructure is virtualized. Often the easiest and most efficient way to get started with containers today is to run containers on virtual machines. Roughly 75% of containers run on-premises are on virtual machines today.  

Red Hat OpenShift and VMware vSphere 6 and 7 are a great combination for running an enterprise container platform on a virtual infrastructure. For the last several years our joint customers have successfully deployed Red Hat OpenShift on VMware for their production-ready applications.

Deploy OpenShift 4.4 on VMware vSphere 7

OpenShift 4 Full Stack Automation with VMware vSphere

Red Hat and VMware have been technology partners for years. Now, Red Hat delivers full stack automation of vSphere deployments with OpenShift 4.5. With full stack automation the installer has control of infrastructure provisioning with an opinionated best practices deployment on Red Hat OpenShift for an even faster initial setup experience on vSphere.

For more customized deployments, Red Hat offers guidance on pre-existing infrastructure through a clear, supported path to a more secure environment to run Red Hat OpenShift on-premises, in hybrid cloud deployments with their public cloud instances.

Here are some great examples of Red Hat customers deploying Red Hat OpenShift on VMware vSphere:

 

Containers break applications into discrete functions to improve agility in development. Kubernetes was developed to automate the deployment, scaling and management of containers. Built and deployed by one of the largest open source communities, Kubernetes is made up of over 1,700 contributors. Kubernetes is at the heart of Red Hat OpenShift.
